The email is spelled correctly and is accepting incoming emails. I've made a new account to write this message, I need access to my original account asap, how can I sort this?

A previous thread on the support website has an incorrect answer: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288732

The responses may have been correct at the time, but there is an easy solution to this problem now. However, the thread has been archived so no new responses are allowed. The problem is a Google search (as well as other search engines and even a support.mozilla search) pops up this archived, incorrect response first. In some searches, a correct response cannot be found on the first page of search results.

It would be nice if there was a way to unarchive older questions to add a new answer to inaccurate or dated info.

Trying to sync firefox bookmarks etc to new computer. I forgot I had previously signed up and in the process of trying to signup again I erred and put my age as "1." Now that I've discovered my old username and password it won't let me sign in because I don't meet age requirements. (I'm 63.) How can I get around this?

I've seen the answer to this on a couple of other Q&A posts, but just in case...

On the Edit Profile page, under Username, it lets you delete the existing name and type in your own. And a helpful instruction tells you permissible characters. But if you attempt save the change, you get an error message.

The other Q&A posts say that you can't, in fact, change your Username. If so, why doesn't the Edit Profile page say so? Why does it mislead you into attempting to change your Username?

Also, the note under the Username textbox says, "Keep in mind that your username is visible to the public." So, if your e-mail includes some form of your personal name, and that name becomes your username by default (which happened to me), and you never notice this, you get exposed (such as by posting a query here)? But in fact, the "Keep in mind..." instruction isn't fully true. As one of the other Q&A posts says, if you choose a display name (which is blank until you add one), your username is NOT exposed. But the Edit Profile page doesn't tell you this.

So, the whole Username portion of the Edit Profile page is very misleading. It needs to be clarified. And, when you sign up for Firefox, you should be given an opportunity to choose a unique username. Mine was forced on me in the background, apparently.

so, im lucky enough or ignorant enough not to have used the support forum for about a year now. so, by downloading the latest thunderbird update, things got a bit sideways and i ended up here for instructions. now, i do have (had) an account with the old system. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/user/georgeka thats me!. it is described that it would be somehow linked to a firefox account or something. didnt happen. i decided to manually re-enter my account info to see if i could do it myself. nope. decided to create new account. using chrome i press the login/signup button, but i am taken to a page dedicated to sign in. there is NO register and NO other info. when i type my email to see if i am taken to the next step: Enter your email -> email ZZZZZZZZ@ABC.CDE -> Continue to Mozilla Support, i get the error, Missing parameter: email while the mail shows up on the box. different mail, same result. goes no, futher.

using firefox 88.0.1 64bit, i reach the same point but when i type the email, i am shown the login / reset page.

I am ... @riltor.com, ... @sudddnlink.net, and ... @gmail.com. I have always been all three of those since the beginning of those services. I had the following PLANS but could not carry them out. I'll explain.

Following the above subject instructions I want to change ... @suddenlink.net from being my mail Firefox sign-on (they've become unreliable of late) if it stays that way I'll quit that ISP. I saw I had set ... @realtor.com as a secondary, so I deleted it IN ORDER TO ADD ... @gmail.com. My plan was then to name ... @gmail.com as the primary and re-add ... @riltor.com as the secondary.

So much for planning, I found out in trying to use ... @gmail.com that it's IN USE, huh? I probably did that at some point, but I don't recall, and Firefox should show it as assigned but actually unused.

Is there a way someone can delete the ... @gmail.com account so it's not there, so that I can make it the primary of this account as stated in my plans above? I want to keep all the stored data in the suddenlink.net account which is why I wanted to change its email to begin with.

I can prove provenance of all three email addresses as being tied to me.

Access Manage Accounts Primary Account email shown. Secondary email states none. Try to add new email so I can make it the Primary account. Enter new email and states already exists?? but still showing NONE in the box. Seen the info on how to change Primary account but cannot get passed my Manage Accounts as the problem with the Secondary email not showing to trigger the change Primary Address box.

I would be very grateful if somebody has a solution to this problem as the current Primary Address is an old email which I wish to stop using.
